Great! Too bad he wasn't in Gitmo.


Hope we have someone ready to find him and take him out.

but just read a couple reviews about it. No clue here how this fits. Are you suggesting such a game? This guy was already sentenced to death and has escaped. His captors must be considered at fault. I could think it's now open season on the guy.

Actually, the Israelis supposedly did a similar thing...
by Paul C / February 5, 2006 10:59 PM PST

...with a Palestinian terrorist leader. They managed to get him to use a cell phone with an ounce or so of plastic explosive in a shaped charge. The story goes that the head of the Mossad called the phone. When the Terrorist answered, the conversation allegedly went something like this:

Terrorist: Hello!

Mossad chief: Hello, my friend. Do you know who this is?

Terrorist: Yes. What do you want?

Mossad Chief: I have a message for you, my friend. Do you wish to here it?

Terrorist: Yes, you swine.

Mossad chief: (Presses pound key)

There was no reply...

you know how they have those chips that can be injected under the skin of your dog so he can be traced if he runs away? Why don't they do that to imprisoned terrorists and let them "escape" so they wiil lead us to others?

But since these guys were in Yemeni custody, probably no chance.

let them escape
by JP Bill / February 5, 2006 3:09 AM PST

Do you think there would be an uproar if a civilian got killed by one of the escapees? (egg on your face?)

Umm,,. don't tell anyone what you're doing???

Seems easy to figure out.

when it comes to telling the public whats going on?

I suppose they could plant an explosive device, at the same time as they are planting the tracking chip, and if there is any problem they could destroy the escapee. Wink

spontanious human combustion?

if people know what you were doing it would be completely ineffective. Anyone can see that.

I like the explosive idea but it would be more difficult to do.

Never? or only after a certain time?

perhaps that's why it took 2 days before they said they escaped.
